Fulham boss Jol praises rapidly improving FC Twente

Fulham boss Martin Jol has heaped praise on Europa League opponents FC Twente.

The west Londoners lie second in Group K behind Twente, but know that victory in Holland will seal their progression to the last 32.

"I feel that they will probably think about changing the line-up but not in the way we do in England," Jol said of the side he played for between 1979 and 1982.

"There could be two, three or four other players, but they are at home so have to show what they are capable of.

"Twente have developed into a very good club. When I was here they were getting [crowds of] 10,000 and now they are getting over 20,000 all the time.

"It is getting bigger and bigger so getting results goes with that responsibility.

"They have showed that over the past three or four years."
